Published

HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher on Friday slammed Fox News, former Donald Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort and the president’s speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) during his opening monologue.

Maher took aim at Bill Shine, the former Fox News co-president who was recently ousted White House deputy chief of staff for communications.

“You know who else is out? Bill Shine is Trump’s fifth — he’s had five communications directors,” Maher noted. “This guy used to run Fox News, apparently he can’t get along with Trump either.”

“So Bill Shine, he is going to be moving over to Trump’s campaign reelection headquarters, so he’s moving to Moscow,” Maher joked.

Maher also targeted Paul Manafort, who was only sentenced to 47 months in prison on Thursday.

“And, of course you heard the big news, Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort was sentenced to four years in jail,” Maher noted.

“He got off pretty easy, the sentencing guidelines said he was supposed to get 19 to 24 years — he got four. Otherwise known as the white guy discount,” Maher continued.

“I haven’t seen a Trump supporter get off that much since Robert Kraft went to that massage parlor in Florida,” he continued.

Maher also drew attention to Trump’s CPAC speech, which lasted over two hours.

“There were kids born at the beginning of this speech, who by the end of it were dating R. Kelly,” he joked.

Trump invited himself to a Houston, Texas rally with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, where he tried to campaign for the U.S. president with Indian-American voters. Sadly, however, nearly 80 percent of Indian-American voters cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Republicans love the Constitution — until it applies to them: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
